tough but slow

Edward Boriso, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: Yes the camera is tough. But the trade off is slow shutter speed. I knew this when it was bought but it seemed slower than I would expect. In the end we bought a cheaper and faster Canon at Target with an extended warranty. That ended up having a lens failure and Canon fully replaced it.

Satisified

Momof2inFL, Amazon

  • Summary: PROS: quick to snap pics, has great lighting, hasn't broken with the many drops I have accidentally made with it, good under water at the water parks, and ocean. CONS: When zoomed in, it gets very blurry, and never focuses in.

Great but beware of serious issue

C. Carr, Amazon
19 March 2013
  • Summary: I'm mainly posting this review so that other users have information about the below issue. I bought the camera with a underwater shell style case to make it even more waterproof and actually have never put it in the water without this case since there is no reason to risk it.

Solid digital camera with sharp images and features, but slow snapshot capture

just_passinthru, Amazon
5 March 2013
  • Summary: Features I like: solid piece of equipment, heavier than other cameras I have owned or used; water resistant, continues to work after being dropped or bumped; pictures are sharp and clear. Lots of fun filters to apply to the images (my favorites are drawing and watercolor).

It's an ok camera, but don't trust ALL of the hyped features.

Gregory A. Henry "atlantagreg", Amazon

  • Summary: This is my third "Tough" model camera. The first one died after someone drove a truck over it (no, they don't stand up to trucks, in icy conditions), and I gave my second one away to a family member who lives in a wetter climate (it's still working for them). The 610 was my replacement for that.

Great Camera, Not Great Photos

J & K Martin, Amazon
17 May 2012
  • Summary: We surf, fish, hike, play at the park with our kids. We needed a waterproof camera for all of these activities and have been using one with a waterproof casing for years. We decided to switch to one that is waterproof on its own.

Water Damage - Not worth it!

Ruffly Translated, Amazon
7 May 2012
  • Summary: I would suggest that you look elsewhere. I love Olympus, and the camera specs are really tempting. In fact, this camera is actually fantastic, until it breaks 2 days into your vacation.

Leaking battery door but great camera

bay swimmer, Amazon
28 November 2011
  • Summary: Great camers and good photos but the battery door is poorly designed and pops open easily allowing water to ruin the camera..The end result is two destroyed cameras one year. The design should have a safety feature over battery compartment or be redesigned with different type of battery access.

Magic isn"t magic

  • Summary: My new TG610 arrived 4 days ago and I have been trying to make it do all of its stuff. It has yet to be in water, no dust and the current temperature is about 90 degrees. Its takes great -- normal pictures but while investigating its capabilities, I found two surprises.

I Love this camera,.....this order was VERY disaappointing

chSunspirit, Amazon
5 July 2011
  • Summary: I have enjoyed using THIS camera in the past. I didn't receive this camera when I ordered a re-furbished camera. I received a non-waterproof....non-shockproof camera in a larger format. The camera that I received could have been bought at this camghra's List NEW price...
